Question and answer
Q: Is acculturating others into another culture ever justified?
A: Despite its status as a prepotent source of support for anti - immigrant policies, cultural threat is presently an under - theorized and under - analyzed concept in the literature, [ largely because it is conceptualized almost ex clusively in symbolic terms, with little to no effort aimed at linking it to citizens? ethnic context. What is particularly lacking is the absence of an attempt
to theoretically and empirically link concerns over the cultural impacts of immigration to citizens? ethnic context . Interestingly , despite being a central concept and key predictor of immigration policy preferences , no existing research specifically addresses whether cultural threat perceptions are influenced by the characteristics of immigrant populations residing near or around citizens. In other words, while cultural threat is about immigration, the existing research has yet to reveal whether it has any systematic relationship to immigration. An important contribution to the opinion researc h can be made by determining whether concrete int ercultural processes operative within citizens residential contexts ? such as increasing eth nic diversity driven by growth in immigrant minorities ? influence the perception that immigrants are culturally threatening. ]
